I do have some desire to do criminal law. But the cost of the degree turns me off. It is too expensive. I cannot afford it without metaphorically killing myself. I believe one must take care of themselves before they can take care of others.

I assume 160k is the SUSS JD without tuition grant or any sort of bursaries? There is quite a wide range of bursaries and study awards on offer for SUSS.

Genuine question, what's the point of going for SUSS when the SMU or NUS JDs seem much cheaper (around $75-80k presumably unsubsidized). And SUSS' reputation doesn't come within a mile of the other 2 schools.
